First Review by Jaelus

Neighborhood beach bar - Edit

We love this place, after many years it's remained consistently good.
They are a surf shack in the middle of the burbs, it's a great escape.
As a beachy restaurant, their primary menu items are seafood, but they have a good range if vegetarian and vegan options, and they know the difference.
My favorite is the tofu crab cake sandwich. There's also vegan chili, tacos, and phish and chips.
The atmosphere is very family-friendly, but there's an outdoor cantina (summer weekends there's live music) and a sports bar inside. They even have a large additional dining room for private events.

Pros: great when you're with omni friends , laid-back atmosphere , great beer choices

Cons: limited vegan options , crowded on weekends

Good bar food for vegans and meat eaters alike - Edit

This is our go to place when you have a group of people that are not vegan and some that are. They have great comfort bar food and a wide variety of vegan options. The uncrabcake sandwich is my favorite. They offer vegan onion rings and vegan dipping sauces. Overall this place is consistently yummy and accommodates a wide variety of pallets.

Pros: Great value, Live music , Quick service/great staff

decent veg options - Edit

Great family place for omnivores and vegans alike. Many vegan options such as "crab" cakes and various tofu dishes. The food isn't gourmet and most of the options are fried and soy based but good beachy spot when you're craving tater tots, fried tofu, and a beer.

Good food, Fun atmosphere - Edit

This is a great place to go with omnivore friends and family. The food is good and reasonably priced. The drinks are good as well. There was a live band performing when I went.

While the vegan options are marked, make sure you mention you want it vegan. I got the cluckless (tofu) tacos and the standard version was made with cheese. (fortunately I asked to make sure it was vegan). The onion rings were also vegan, and they were delicious.

Pros: Vegan items marked, Fun atmosphere

Decent vegan options - Edit

The atmosphere is like a Florida beach shack with a bar. Inside and outside seating available. Many things on the menu can be made vegan through subsitutions, but it's much easier if you just ask for the vegan menu when you get there. It's got the entrees on there with the substitutions already laid out to make them vegan and there are quite a few tasty options. The best thing on the menu though is the blackened tofu sandwich (so delicious!) which comes with vegan tartar sauce and coleslaw. I find this is a great go to place to grab a bite to eat with my non-veg friends since everyone can get what they like without making a big deal of it.

Pros: Seperate veg menu, Friendly staff, Many vegan options
